TRENTON, N.J. - County Executive Brian M. Hughes congratulates Donna Giovannetti, chief of Mercer County’s Office of Consumer Affairs, for being re-elected to a second term as Vice President of County and Municipal Consumer Agencies of New Jersey (CAMCA).

“I am proud that Mercer County employees are driven to give their best at work, in addition to sharing their knowledge, their skills and their leadership abilities with outside organizations,” said Hughes.

Mercer County Consumer Affairs, where Giovannetti has been employed in various positions for the past 30 years, is a law enforcement agency that handles complaints from Mercer County consumers against local businesses, and works to protect consumers against fraudulent business practices through the NJ Consumer Fraud Act. The department serves the more than 365,000 Mercer County residents with consumer counseling and education, as well as offering complaint resolution services.

While the department’s jurisdiction concerns mostly Mercer County businesses, referral services are provided to assist all Mercer County consumers.

“It’s an honor to serve as CAMCA Vice President,” Giovannetti said. “Representing both Mercer’s constituents and the State of New Jersey in protecting consumers and to establish legislative initiatives and educational programs is a privilege.”

CAMCA is an organization in conjunction with Consumer Affairs departments across the state. The organization is committed to responding to, investigating and resolving consumer complaints professionally and efficiently as well as representing, educating and advocating consumers in New Jersey.
